Quote: “One of the things I love to do is write, it’s a passion. This is a quote I wrote that we have on the HVAM website. HVAM was founded on a strong spiritual foundation and we believe it has allowed us to work in excellence and opened doors for us to continue spreading awareness about vitiligo. “We must stop closing our eyes to the TRUTH. We must believe our PURPOSE is God-given and God-driven. It is not driven by what people think, say, or do BUT by what God predestined US to think, say, and do. We must love who we are, as we are. When we love ourselves, we attract love from others. We are God’s Masterpiece. Uniquely Designed.” D’Lyric Inspired
